Patient information and Electronic Medical Records

On a regular basis, our customers send us patient census sheets to notify our billing department of any payer source changes or discharges. This is greatly beneficial and helps us update our billing statements before they get sent out. If your facility isn't already providing this to us, I would encourage you to do so. Some facilities have allowed us to access their electronic medical records for billing purposes. Since we are a business associate for these facilities, we aren't in violation of the HIPAA rules that exist. Since Northwest Respiratory has been utilizing this process, it has been very helpful and we are open to working with any customers who would like to offer access to their electronic medical records for billing purposes. If you are interested in setting this up for your facility, please contact myself or your billing representative to do so.
